Fun Fact of the Day: As first pointed out by an unnamed Harvard music major, the song used to score the anti-gay, Christian-centric political ad released this week by GOP presidential candidate Rick Perry was heavily inspired by composer Aaron Copland’s “Appalachian Spring” (SFW link, NSFW site).
Copland, a gay American Jew, was also known to have supported the Communist Party.
YOU CAN’T MAKE THIS SHIT UP

Weellllll, it all depends on what kind of phone you have…
This is the 180 movie,about the Holocaust,and the Holocaust that’s still going on today in America. sword-meets-rose,this is for you.
…NO. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME.
The Holocaust CANNOT be compared to abortion. Here is a post I have written that explains why the Holocaust. Read it.
Here are some more reasons why this “documentary” is full of shit (courtesy of propaganda-for-life):
- Jews are more often pro-choice than not.
- Jewish interpretation of scripture generally supports this view. [this is demonstrated by Rashi’s teachings and Talmud]
- When you make this comparison, you are appropriating the suffering of millions, still fresh in many people’s minds, to further a political cause. Doing this with any political cause is bad enough, but it’s even worse when it’s, again, a cause Jews usually disagree with.
- When people who aren’t Jewish, usually Christians, make this comparison, they take away Jewish people’s ability to live as they wish. We have freedom of religion for a reason, people. Christians don’t get to be the default.
Elie Wiesel, the Nobel Peace Prize-winning Holocaust survivor, has said the following about the detestable Holocaust-abortion comparison:
I am uncomfortable with the language of this debate. I resent the violence of the language the words that they use like Holocaust no it is not a Holocaust. It is blasphemy to reduce a tragedy of such monumental proportions to this human tragedy, and abortion is a human tragedy. What should be done is to give back the human proportion to the abortion issue, and when we see it as such we may be able to have much more understanding for the woman who chooses it. Women who choose abortion are consistently labeled killers, and I personally have been compared to Hitler and called a great murderer.
A woman who feels she cannot go on, and with pain and despair she decides that she has to give up her child, is this woman a killer? Really really. But look, you cannot let these words hurt you. You have to be strong not to pay any attention because those who do that call you a Hitler and relate it to the Holocaust prove that they do not know what the Holocaust was.
Finally, what Abraham Foxman, Holocaust survivor and director of the Anti-Defamation League, says:
This film is a perverse attempt to make a case against abortion in America through the cynical abuse of the memory of those killed in the Holocaust. It is, quite frankly, one of the most offensive and outrageous abuses of the memory of the Holocaust we have seen in years. Not only does the film try to assert a moral equivalency between the Holocaust and abortion, but it also brings Jews and Jewish history into the discussion and then calls on its viewers to repent and accept Jesus as their savior.
I wish there was like, an app that punched people in the face every time they reblogged this video to comment on how ~profound~ it is
Come on Apple, don’t let me down
I can’t even watch this… It just pisses me off so much.
I invite you to gaze upon the majestic gallop of the one-humped Dromedary Camel.
There aren’t any two humped dromedary camels. Bactrian are the two humped ones…
